Summer Sunshine...

It's the first of August and the slopes are positively buzzing with a million, 
no a BILLION, grasshoppers! 

The wildlife currently in the woods and on the slopes is amazing. 
In just one hour I saw dozens of different types of butterflies along with a variety of bees.

This is what a 'proper' meadow should look like - tall grasses full of thistles, 
clover and a vast array of plants I don't happen to know the names of, 
along with mowed areas for people to enjoy the open spaces with a picnic 
or simply sunbathing on a summer's day.

We're extremely lucky to have such a wonderful area right on our doorsteps 
to enjoy whenever we want to. Long may it continue to be as fabulous as it is right now...
